2020 Recent Vote
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI-13) offered an amendment to H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act, which would invest $4.5 billion per year for 5 years to fully replace lead service lines providing drinking water in communities across the nation. The funding would prioritize disadvantaged and environmental justice communities, who disproportionately have lead service lines in their homes. Lead in drinking water harms children, who are most vulnerable as their brains are still developing. On July 1, the House approved the Tlaib amendment by a vote of 240-181 (House roll call vote 136). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
